live domi n ico. looks like a protester is being removed. senator feinstein asked for protesters to be removed from the room. i was not able to catch a glimpse of the banner they were holding. it's not unusual to see these disruptions. but we'll get more on exactly what was going on there but these are live pictures right now. you hear the gavel but just quickly -- let's just -- we were going to talk about hagel but i want to talk about brennan. you are expecting fireworks, right? that's what we've been talking about. >> i think we expect brennan to be confirmed, especially considering polls on drones, for example, show 83% of americans a year ago support the president's use of drones overseas. that doesn't mean that there isn't a significant and deep disaffection for the use of them or, for example, we talked about it yesterday, or the which are or enhanced interrogation techniques as the bush administration called it. all of that is stuff john brennan knows a heck of a lot about and people will be outraged he is president obama's nominee. >> we discussed this prior but original
. >> jennifer: and that happened again and again and again four times he was interrupted until senator feinstein finally had to clear the room. >> okay, we're going to halt the hearing. i'm going to ask that the room be cleared and associates not allowed back in. we've done this five times now and five times are enough. we'll recess for a few minutes. >> jennifer: when the hearings resumeed brennon told senators that drone strikes do meet rigorous standard. the rob is that reliable information is hard to come by. the strikes are happening in dangerous and remote areas of pakistan and somalia. the best information comes from the new america foundation and they report that since brennon became the top adviser drone strikes have killed over 1500 people and 143 of those 1500 have been identified as civilians in credible news reports. our government's estimates are highly classified. in the senate only dianne feinstein's intelligence committee has been briefed but feinstein has long argued that based on those briefings civilian casualties are very low. here she is in 2011. >> the collateral damage is
. senator feinstein was obviously working behind the scenes. and so finally last night around 6:30, 7:00 last night, the white house relented and the president called wyden. i know you guys are going to talk to wyden later. but this is a very big deal because now the drone policy is going to be central to this confirmation hearing today. >> you know, yesterday pete wehner wrote this. and he's quoting barack obama from may 29th, 2009, the famous speech at the national archives. where he says, let me be clear. we are at war with al qaeda, but we need to update our institutions and do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law and due process. in checks and balances and accountability for reasons i will explain, the decisions were made over the last eight years during the bush years established an ad hoc legal approach for fighting terrorism that was neither effective nor sustainable. a framework that failed to rely on our legal traditions and time-tested institutions and that failed to use our values as a compass. those words, steve, whether you agree with this drone program or no
you look at the feinstein bill, he is supporting? that is exactly what it does. i mean, i think what they'll do is turn the universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and law-abiding people don't want that. i mean, my -- >> absolutely do not -- forgive me, sir, you take something that is here, and you say it will go all the way over there. there is no indication, i mean, i can understand you are saying, that is a threat but there is nothing anyone in the administration has said that indicates they are going to have a universal registry. >> and obamacare wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax. >> chris: the supreme court decided that. >> you cannot trust these people. my god, dianne feinstein, said, if i could go door-to-door and pick 'em all up, i would do it. can i tell you what i think will work -- >> i'll ask you a couple of questions, the murder today, one of the things that concerns people, it seems every day we talk about a shooting. oftentimes, mass shooting. >> right. >> chris: day after day after day and the frustration is you d
? >> dianne feinstein, the chair of the committee yesterday still saying yesterday they wanted the original documents. then today on our program at 1:00, the house chairman who carries a lot of weight about and has is very supportive, a former fbi guy, a republican, though, said he also thought the original memos should be turned over, that the white paper that had been turned over to them last summer that michael isikoff uncovered and reported first on your show was not good enough. that it needed to finally be the actual legal guidance that was turned over to the oversight committees. and we're talking about the two intelligence committees, rachel, who handle classified information all the time. and there haven't been any leaks out of those committees. so they were facing a confirmation hearing that was potentially contentious. and also, other answers were given to the committee that were revealed today from john brennan. we can talk about that after a moment. they knew that there were other issues they were going to have to deal with. they needed to get this off the table. >> well, in te
democrats were saying, look if we -- dianne feinstein, if we don't get this, it's going to be a problem. you don't want it to be more of a public problem with john brennan than it already is going to be, but the hearing is already i think shaping up to be a debate. among democrats and republicans, but a lot of folks -- should we be telling -- you don't want them to turn into an all-out back and forth over this. if you give us this document, it might not be great for john brennan, but it seems likely we're not going to hold this up. it seems like he winds up getting confirmed. they did it under dur es. if -- in a perfect world i don't think the white house would have chosen to just sort of put this documentation out there. the timing of it suggests they wouldn't. >> well, let's take a look, a quick look, at john brennan back at the woodrow wilson center back in april last april with his explanation for why he believed that drones do conform to principles of humanity and here's his words. >> targeted strikes conform to the principle of humanity, which requires us to use weapons that will not i
was accurate. >> i'm referring not to the report but the statement that chairman feinstein and i issued april 27, 2012. we flat out say that those statements are wrong. do you have any basis to disagree? >> i do not. >> will you when you become c.i.a. director take the statement that we have issued and tell us whether or not you disagree with any of the statements we have made about those statements of those three men? will you do that if confirmed? >> i will look at consider that request. the report the committee put together, i need to look at the c.i.a. response and that report raises serious questions about whether worthwhile intelligence came from these individuals. >> will you include a review of our joint statement and tell us whether you disagree with anything we said. >> i will be happy to. >> one final point, and that has to do with a very famous document. my time is not yet up. that has to do with a cable that came in. >> the issue is whether or not there was a meeting in prague between one of the people who attacked the trade center and the iraqi intelligence. the cable that came
senator feinstein and obama. i say perverse, because he then goes out and commits a set of atrocities with a gun. he sounds completely unhinged, yet the catalyst for all this appeared to be his firing from the lapd. do you have any recollection of what happened with him? do you remember him? >> first off, we don't know hot the catalyst was. the firing was back in 2008, i believe. it's now over five years ago. so what has transpired during those five years, the court several years later upheld the firing. so as to what triggered the actions, the producing of the manifesto, the separate sending of a package to cnn last friday, we don't know. and we won't know until they either apprehend him or other information comes forward. so was it the firing? was it something else that transpired? he appears to have a lot of anger directed to a lot of different people. some who have no relationship at all, as best we can tell, with anything having to do with the discharge. >> the package he sent to anderson cooper, which anderson didn't see until today, wasn't made aware of it, it contained a numbe
that. >> didianne feinstein said if i could o go door to door and pick them all up i would do it. can i say one more. >> chris: i have one more question. forgive me, sir, i'm going to conduct the interview. every day we talk about a shooting. often times mass shooting day-after-day after day and the frustration s you don't think that limiting guns has anything to do with that. i understand there is some things you think do work and we will talk about that. the murder yesterday of former navy seal chris kyle. this was a man who wrote american sniper. the man credited with the largest number of confirmed kills of any american soldier ever. he and another man gunned down at a texas gun range. >> if you want to stop violence in this country here is what you do. first, if you want to protect our kids you put armed security in schools. i'm not talking about arming teachers. i'm talking about police officers and certified professional security people. there is not a parent that sends off their kid to school that wants the kids to be unprotected. just in atlanta this past week armed security st
slammed harry reid for saying he hadn't read dianne feinstein's bill banning assault weapons. >> how can harry reid, a fellow democrat, and i'm willing to criticize him, say he hasn't read the bill. this is an emergency. let's knock off the washington baloney and support the president and get some things done. >> the white house wants to overload washington's political circuits. an effort to see what it can get through congress without letting congress and particularly congressional republicans, define what issues get addressed. republican leaders are making it clear they prefer to talk about just one thing before the march budget shutdown. >> this was supposed to be the day that the president submitted his budget to the congress. but it's not coming. i think that's too bad. our economy could use some presidential leadership right now. >> and top senate republican mitch mcconnell was just as eager to talk budget hitting the floor to slam democrats for floating new revenue proposals. >> this is just another opportunity to trot out the democrat focus group approved policy stunt. if this is
really need to do this. >> he was -- on sunday he didn't -- he read dianne feinstein's -- >> he made it very clear that this was not going because of the interests in the state where they're building and manufacturing. the question i think that you ultimately come down to and luke and others may hear this on the hell is with this whole idea of the assault weapons ban per se, people are buying these guns. it's the number one seller, the ar-15. they're getting them in droves. they're not just buying one. they're buying three, four. does ban then lead to confiscation? you have now armed a significant portion of the gun population. >> well, 300 more americans own guns than cars. >> there were 1.5 million preban assault weapons. 25 million preban high capacity making sfwleenz, and 4.7 million high capacity magazines. >> speaking to the concern that people have and what i hear from the gun owners that i know and some of them who own some of these weapons, that is their legitimate fear that this becomes a slippery slope and becomes the door that opens and allows the federal government to co
calling for the original justice department memo to be released senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein suggested full transparency has already been achieved, quote. i have been calling for the public release of the administration's legal analysis of the use of lethal force, particularly against u.s. citizens, for more than a year. that analysis is now public, and the american people can review and judge the legality of these operations. the bottom line is that the white house doesn't steam have much of a political problem with the public. the public is intent to go after the bad guys, if you will, regardless of the concerns of a slippery slope, and unless the public begins to share in the outrage, congress may not show it, but it's amazing that one of the three branches of government doesn't want to know why it does not have oversight over this executive branch policy. >>> finally, the reason we're here in chicago today. last night i sat down with the brain trust of the obama and the romney campaigns. eight of the top advisers, all in one room at the university of chicago's institute o
] >> chris: chris the only thing real there was trash talk. dianne feinstein is leading the confirmation hearings for cia director nominee john brennan and that's "special report" for tonight. i'm chris wallace in washington. keep it right here on fox where more news is always on the way. "special report" online with a twist starts right now. >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, more graphic testimony from a woman on trial for killing her boyfriend. she says she shot him, stabbed him, slit his throat. but jody arias says it was actually all his fault. plus, say good bye to mail on saturday. >> delivery schedule too big of a cost savings to ignore. >> shepard: tonight, why letter carriers say this is going to be a disaster. the $10,000 college degree. >> such a great price for such a great education. >> what we're bringing to the table is opportunity and access. >> shepard: what do you really get for your money? plus, monopoly announces which token will never again pass go. and which new one will take its place. but first from fox this wednesday night. a woman who admits stabbing
, dianne feinstein, eventually cleared the room. later, brennan cited the protesters when he addressed what he called a misperception about the goal of the drone strikes. let's listen. >> i think there is a misimpression on the part of some american people who believe that we take strikes to punish terrorists for past transgressions. nothing could be further from the truth. we only take such actions as a last resort to save lives when there's no other alternative to taking an action that's going to mitigate that threat. so we need to make sure there is an understanding, and the people that were standing up here today, i think they really have a misunderstanding of what we do as a government and the care that we take and the agony that we go through to make sure that we do not have any collateral injuries or deaths. >> robin, when he described this as a last resort to save lives, one reaction i had is, among the lives we save when we use drones are those of troops who otherwise would be going into harm's way. >> absolutely. i lived in beirut when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to
. the senators from san francisco and california, the 49ers, senators feinstein and boxer. speaker pelosi was with us yesterday in new orleans. and thousands of fans from all over the world and, of course, watching on television. and i think -- i wanted to make a note on this floor, not because it was just a sporting event -- although it's one of i think the highest watched super bowls ever in the history of the game, but, mr. president, because of the role that this congress played and the administration in helping this great city and region and state rebound from what was a devastating body blow 7 1/2 years ago when hurricane katrina and then rita hit three weeks later and then the levees broke anin over 52 places, the city wt virtually underwater, at least two-thirds of the city. and to see 7 1/2 years later the city rebound, the people of new orleans and louisiana are just foremost in my thoughts right now for their fighting spirit, theirry sell yancy, their unwilling -- their resiliency, their unwillingness to give occupy this special place in will celebrate its 300th birthday in 201
neighbor -- i always like to say dianne feinstein is my neighbor, but i point out it is at work. she works in the offices as opposed to home. she works next to me, and she is working very hard on that piece of the bill, and knows very well what you are talking about representing the state of california. working with senator rubio and others on that bill. i know they are in the middle of negotiations so i do not want to put words in her mouth, but i know that the family concern is a piece. >> it is interesting that the afl-cio have a very proactive, progressive position on this and are out advertising and moving that now. i asked senator mccain. he said, they are in exactly the same place. this is important. it is a larger picture where seemingly fighting pieces, kennedy and others with his early legislation, there is more goodwill to try to move this forward. >> it would be in a bigger bill. i think it is a good thing we have these two bills that are arguably complicated but do separate things. the agriculture workers and the one with senator hatch, the expert bill. they are completely rel
feinstein's bill. >> how can it impede somebody's trite have a background check on their mental health before they buy a gun? what is it about that that impedes anyone's life? >> what becomes the line. we can have the discussion. most of my generation is on some kind of anti-depressant at some point. is that the line? do you impede those people's constitutional rights because they have taken an anti-depressant? martha: in many cases these young people have people in their lives who felt strongly their child was out of control and they were capable of violence but they had nowhere to turn. if you haven't broken a law you can't institutionalize your child. as a mom you can't imagine saying this. there are mothers out there who believe their child is not safe for society and they have nowhere to turn. i don't hear anyone screaming and yell being this issue. there was somebody around this issue who knew. there were people who said, that's the guy. everybody in town knew that would be the guy. that issue i would love to hear more from the president on this issue. it feels like we are going
guns. have you looked at the feinstein bill? that is exactly what he has done. i think of what they will do is turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people, law abiding people do not want that. >> forgive me, sir, you take something that is here and say that it will go all the way over there. there is no indication. i can understand that you are saying that that is the threat, but nothing from the -- but nothing from the administration indicates that. >> obama care was not a tax until they needed to be a tax. >> that was the supreme court. host: weighing in on the conversation, the financial crisis, did it delay your retirement? on twitter you can participate as well. host: let's hear from sandra in virginia. hello. caller: i am the wife of a retired pastor. he is not retired, we cannot retire. because when the crash happened, we received notice from our retirement fund that in order for them to serve everyone, they were going to cut everyone, so we got a cut from 2100 per month to 1600 per month. my husband has to continue workin
as though the chair wom woman, dianne feinstein, has john brennan's back. she released a statement talking about the fact that she had seen information on -- that proves the legality of this drone use. so that definitely helps brennan big time on the dynamic of his nomination at his confirmation hearing. >> lots of confirmation hearings about to take place and jack lew, too, for treasury. we'll watch this in the coming days. guys, thank you very much. >>> the push for gun control is getting star power in washington today to call for increased gun regulations. cnn's crime and justice correspondence is joe johns. this is all part of a bigger push. >> wolf, we've seen it before, we'll likely see it again. this time it was a whole cast of artists and others performing gun control to try to kweep the pressure on congress. stars speaking out in washington. it's the latest push by gun control groups to lobby the congress. >> doing nothing will fail. doing nothing has failed. >> if we as a people don't act after sandy hook, then we as a people are broken. >> i would like assault weapons eliminated
. they felt like they have been stonewalling. one scene i thought was memorable, when dianne feinstein took after him for not allowing senate staff access to a lot of this information really was a window on how washington works that, you know, people think that senators sort of pore over a lot of these and study them. their staffs brief them and tell them what's going on. the suggestion staff can't have access is debilitating as we saw yesterday. >> it was interesting that brennan said that he, when waterboarding came on, when he was at the cia that he was not in a position to try to stop it, but that he had expressed his reservations about it, his opposition to it and that he would never happen under his watch under director of cia. did that come across as auth authentic? a little bit different from waterboarding. something president obama ostensibly put a stop to said we don't water board. we don't torture. so the belief is i guess, it goes on some of these cia black sites that may or may not exist officially. >> so on the drones, i mean when the flap started
the room. >> stephanie: that was senator feinstein. >> yeah. >> stephanie: huh? >> hum. >> stephanie: okay. >> it's just interesting, you know. >> stephanie: i had this debate, i was on governor granholm's last show -- [ applause ] >> stephanie: i can't breathe without her. she might be up for a cabinet post, though. i'll just keep calling her over and oversee if she'll take my call. >> no, she won't. >> stephanie: no but we had a really interesting discussion this is just not a black or whitish you. but she believed that the president is fighting a smarter tougher war on terror and george bush with one bomb took out several blocks in iraq bought he thought saadam might be there or whatever. and talk about a dumb war. mickey in south dakota you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi mickey. >> caller: yes. howdy everybody. first off i wish i could come see you guys in chicago. i can't financially afford it but -- >> stephanie: we have some $25 tickets on sale -- >> it's getting there from south dakota -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: but at least i get you on direc
